Here we are again! This week at Restaurantware we are excited to share with you the latest behind the scene footage with the king of pastry chef Antonio Bachour at the St. Regis Hotel in Bal Harbour.

We would like to begin by letting you know more about Chef Bachour and thanking him again for allowing us to enter the “artist’s room” as he was working with Restaurantware’s eco-friendly bamboo serving collection.

Antonio Bachour: Raised in Puerto Rico and felt in love with pastry at a very young age due to the fact that he spent his childhood in his family’s bakery. Chef Bachour graduated from Johnson & Wales and he spent the early years of his career as a pastry chef at the Sand Hotel & Casino and Westin Rio Mar. Then he moved to San Juan and worked for two years as the pastry chef at the Ritz-Carlton . In 2001, Antonio Bachour moved to Miami Beach and became a pastry chef at the Talula. Quickly after moving to Miami Beach, he started experimenting with Italian delicacies in both New York and Miami. In 2011, Pastry chef Antonio Bachour was also selected as one of “The top 10 pastry chefs”  by Dessert Professional Magazine and he is successfully creating innovative recipes every year.
